Do I Qualify?

The Food Bank for Larimer County provides food to all in need based on their household size and their monthly gross income. The definition of household is the total number of related or unrelated persons living at the same address who purchase, prepare, and consume food together. Once qualified, you are allowed to shop in Food Share twice a week. Two federally-funded governmental programs are distributed directly at the Food Bank. Commodities Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) and The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) provide nutritious, perishable and non-perishable USDA food to those who qualify.
